HBO Max’s THE DEAD BOY DETECTIVES Filming in Downtown Vancouver With Main Cast on Set

HBO Max’s The Dead Boy Detectives: George Rexstrew as Edwin Payne and Jayden Revri as Charles Rowland filming in downtown Vancouver.

Dead Boy Detectives is a fresh take on a ghost story that explores loss, grief, and death through the lens of Edwin Payne (George Rexstrew) and Charles Rowland (Jayden Revri), two dead British teenagers, and their very alive friend, Crystal Palace (Kassius Nelson). So, it’s a lot like a vintage detective series — only darker and on acid.

Neil Gaiman’s graphic novels follow two teenagers who were murdered at St. Hilarion’s Boarding School: Edwin Paine, in 1916 by a group of bullies, and Charles Rowland, in 1990 by the ghosts of the same group of bullies. When the two spirits meet and are not taken to Hell, they instead start up a detective agency together. At a later point, Charles saves the life of Crystal Palace and she joins the agency as its only living member using her skills with technology and as a psychic to aid their investigations.

From The Flight Attendant’s Steve Yockey, Doom Patrol’s Jeremy Carver, Uber Producer Greg Berlanti. and Neil Gaiman.
